I'm not too secretive about the fact that I'm a huge fan of a first look on your wedding day! While I certainly don't require any of my couples to have a first look, I have shot enough weddings to know that they offer a ton of benefit, and I make sure my couples know all the pros and cons as they are planning their day.
Fun fact: I have shot over half of my weddings pregnant. And, since I've had babies in October and November, I'm usually shooting pretty far into my second and third trimester, and typically in South Dakota heat. While it's not super ideal (it's CRAZY what a toll wedding days take on your body, even when you're not pregnant!), it's also the reality of life right now as we grow our family.
